Postcards from U Bein Bridge, Myanmar

If you’re going to Myanmar, I’d strongly recommend adding U Bein Bridge to your itinerary. 

Before our excursion, we started with a good lunch including more delicious salads —Omelette Salad: 

Herb Salad of cilantro and sawtooth herb with roasted peanuts:  

Banana Leaf Salad:

And my favourite dessert yet — Fried Bananas in Mandalay Rum Caramel:

And then out to walk U Bein Bridge in the late afternoon sun. The bridge is the world’s longest teak bridge (at 1.2km long), as well as the oldest (built in 1850). I walked across half of it and the view was divine:

And then down a flight of stairs to enjoy the view of the bridge by boat:

At this point, we got to watch the sunset over Taungthaman Lake:

We finished the day with Campari cocktails, clinking Chakwa!!! (“Cheers!!!”)
